    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefits. Free food. Decent pay. Special events. Most of the people are nice. That pretty much sums up most of what's good.

    Cons

    Extremely limited advancement opportunities. Unrealistic goals and expectations. Blatant favoritism. No regard for work-life balance, you're often expected to come in early, work late and and place company needs before your personal needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to be more impartial and stop micro-managing.

    I have been working at Bloomberg L.P. as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Free breakfast, lunch and dinner are a huge plus and save you the extra expense. Relaxing, social environment, where the floor plan is open so you don't feel closed off and alone the whole day.

    Cons

    experience as a temp does not transfer outside, really hard to relate anything they have you do to requirements for getting a position outside. Seems like bloomberg is a dead end career, works off horizontal movement rather than vertical movement within the company. People just go department to department.
